I have lived in Northern Virginia for 35 years. Right outside the infamous Beltway is the unincorporated town of Merrifield. Merrifield used to be an area of mostly seedy warehouses, but in the last couple of years, major transformation has taken place. One of the most exciting of these has been the opening of the Mosaic District, a mixed-use development including shopping, restaurants, a great independent cinema movie theater, townhomes, and restaurants. We’re over there at least 2-3 times a week because we love it so much. Here’s what the developers have to say about the Mosaic District:
